Chris L. S. Coryn--Interdisciplinary Evaluation Ph.D. Program Director, WMU
Evaluation Center: October 9, 2007
Nearly 90 percent of papers published in academic journals are never cited. In fact, as many as 50 percent are never even read by anyone other than their authors, referees, and journal editors. The purpose of this Evaluation Café is to provide useful information and strategies for current graduate students and recent graduates on the process of (re)structuring a dissertation or thesis into a publishable journal or book manuscript, getting it published, and perhaps most important, getting it noticed. Other topics that will be discussed include targeting a journal, submitting a manuscript, understanding the review process, deciphering the editor's letter, revising and resubmitting the manuscript, and regrouping after rejection.
